Started in 2007 to keep a track of gay films that I watched, this blog has come much further than I had planned. There are tons of movies that I need to watch and review here. Through this blog, I want to give you genuine, my personal heart-felt review of the films that I see. These are my personal thoughts and opinions about the films and I would love to hear your thoughts on these films as well. I always reply to comments in a day or two. Please help me make my blog more popular by becoming a member, following it and by recommending it to your friends. As far as I know this is one of the very very few gay movie review blogs where reviews are not linked or copy-paste imdb summary. Enjoy and do keep writing your feedback.

Gay Short Films : 16

Pool Days
This is a very interesting short film. It can be rightly put in the category of teenage coming-out stories. Justin is a 17 year old teenager who gets a summer job at a health club. He notices he is getting attracted to some hot men in the club but keeps denying it. One budding swimmer in the club helps him get over his anxiety and help him realize who he really is and be ok with it. It is a good film that shows the struggles that most teenagers have coming out and how maybe some of us help them get over their anxiety. Acting by both the principal characters is actually very good and real and I must say that they are both very good looking and easy on the eyes. Justin specially looks good and does his job very well. A duration of about 25 plus minutes keeps this film at the right length where as a viewer I get enough of context to not imagine things on my own and at the same time, it doesn't feel too dragged. (7/10)

Summer Blues (Norway)
This was a very interesting short film. Mads and his girlfriend are fighting over some issues. Enter Kristian, Mads best friend who is back for summer break. The 3 of them with another girl go to a summer home for the weekend to a nearby lake. Mads is getting way too drunk to handle his girlfriend's situation. Rumour from his friends is that she might not be entirely faithful to Mads. Kristian sees this as an opportunity to explore his feelings for Mads while he is sleeping. Not only he explore his bare chest with his lips , he even goes south. The shock comes in the morning when Mads tells him that he was indeed awake and also Mads works out his issues with his girlfriend. It is too embarrassing an awkward for the 2 friends to be together now. That still doesn't stop Mads from giving him a goodbye peck on his cheek. (6/10)

Platero (Argentina)
Its summer time and a family of four is entertaining their kids friends for the day. Walter and Analia are siblings and its their friends visiting. Walter has hots for Analia's brother, whose nickname is Platero because of his dick size. The film just focuses on sexual tension when everyone is dealing with extreme heat, swimming in pool and eating. The friends engage in all sorts of conversations. Walter watches his sister giving bj to Platero which excites him. When she has to leave midway, he tries to take a chance with Platero but gets snubbed. The sexual tension was so real, that I could completely feel what must have been going inside me. Very very good but it can test your patience. (7/10)

Weak Species
Its almost a 30 minute movie. The film explores George and Steve. Both are high school students. For student, it gives him a sense of power to seduce his fellow classmates, have sex and then reject them.When Steve sets his sights on the school star athlete, he starts a cat and mouse chase which could ruin him and his idol. Rejected by Steve, George finds himself in dangerous situations where he goes on dangerous sex encounters beyond usual S&M, which could be critical to his life. When the star football athlete dies in an accent, his mates bash up Steve and around the same time George barely manages to save his life. The 2 unlikeliest of guys get together and hope to find love in each other. Some of the scenes are very disturbing and graphic to watch in the film. This film is definitely for the weak heart but is definitey an interetsing concept. Both the lead actors act really really well. (6/10)

Gingers (UK/Portugal)
Gingers. Redheads. Fire crotches... It is an incredibly sexy, erotic and beautiful short film in which a group of redheaded, mainly European men are interviewed in their glorious nakedness. They talk about their bodies in really what is very intimate detail - their fur, their hair, their cocks, their skin - as well as what it feels like to be fetishised for being a redheaded gay man. Each body part is lovingly lingered upon by the camera - faces, chests, pubic hair and cocks including an amazing sequence of each of their cocks growing from soft to hard in speeded-up time. Really, it is just a hymn of praise to the stark and outstanding beauty of redheaded men. It was a very interesting and sexy short. (6.5/10)
